Toward a cosmology: why has a book of cosmology be written by a psychiatrist?

Abstract: Toward a cosmology (1936) is Minkowski’s last philosophical book, which reverberates with the latter and last lessons of Merleau-Ponty about “nature”. This book investigates the possibility of a new comprehension of nature compared to the one given by the so called “natural sciences”. Minkowski’s notion of nature implies a critic of the traditional dualism between mind and body, history and nature, and has to be understood in the frame of a philosophy of life, so that the cosmos has itself to be thought of as a living cosmos.
